Photo Number 1784

My Cousin Verniel sent me a  few graduation photos from the year 1948.  She is not certain who they are?
Beverly Carlson  Douglas Carlsons sister Verniel
Verniel thinks this one might be Beverly Carlson.  Douglas Carlson’s sister.
Rex McDonald was the photographer in Wadena Minnesota.
This could be from Sebeka, Menahga, Wadena or Frazee High School. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Update :  From Iggy

Parents Nels and Hilma Carlson  living in Blueberry Township in 1940 census.  She was nine years old in the census and her brother Douglas was two.


  1. It's possible. Here is the 1940 US census record for a Beverly Carlson, sister of Douglas.

    She'd be the right age and in the right location for a 1948 High School photo.

  2. When I think of all the mystery photos accumulated by family members--received with a letter in the mail, for instance--it reminds me of what an invisible but tangled mess our network of photographs must have created, as they crisscrossed the country (and likely the globe) in letters to friends and associates. Now their kids and grand-kids are wondering, "Who were these people?!"

  3. Today June 5 2015 I sent a copy of this blog to Doug in Bovey MN . We will see what happens next.
